After getting a vasectomy earlier this week, GM Monty did another crazy thing and not only made a huge trade, but decided to send it in 3 times.

 

Damn these extra strength Advil’s.

welcome to the club :wacko:

SIGNING: The Buffalo Sabres have signed Nikita Gusev to a four year contract.

Woooo! We are very excited to add Nikita to the mix. The trade of Brock Boeser left us with a hole in our top 6 that we believe Nikita can step right in and fill.

I am very surprised he got signed for 4M. I thought for sure he would have been a higher AAV target! Congrats thunder!  That is a good value signing! I'm curious to see how he translates to the NHL!

Should have came out to Vancouver to see Dr. Pollock. No Needle No scalpel!

Went to a similar guy in Winnipeg who’s been doing it for 27 years. Got to watch Seinfeld while he did the procedure. That helped.

That's a lot of term for a guy who has never played in the NHL.

 

But with the European opt oiut clause, I like the gamble.

Much like Kenny Rogers, I'm a bit of a gambler...

Hey guys, so I found out today I don't earn enough to " have people for that " so looks like the wife and kid are being jerks and not doing the yard work. Unbelievable I know, so anyways I guess that leaves me.

 

A slew of signings incoming this evening.

 

Thanks

Surprisingly, this trade came together very, very quickly between @gmen81 and myself. All in all, I think this is fair for both sides.

 

Larkin is miles better than Kadri, but Kadri plays on the Avs, which is where the benefit comes playoff time.

 

Karlsson is better than Chabot, due to the Shark factor and not the Ottawa factor. The salary cap hit is also a massive risk for me. But this is about immediate impact for the playoffs. And both Chabot and Larkin would not have helped come the playoffs, whereas Karlsson and Kadri will.

 

It became apparent once the base was agreed upon that there would need to be a little more happening, which was where Vesalainen and Wahlstrom came in. Vesalainen is going to help now, which is where I’m losing out in the short term. However, with Hellebuyck and Connor as Winnipeg rep, with Dylan Samberg in the waiting, I’m well suited for Winnipeg players. I think Wahlstrom had a down year and will likely turn it around quickly in Bridgeport next year.
